- Frenchwoman Sonia Rykiel founded her namesake label and opened her first boutique in Paris, in 1968.
- Exuberant, striped knitwear and sweaters emblazoned with written messages are the label's trademark. Rykiel favors lace, rhinestones, black, boyfriend trousers, and berets.
- Rykiel invented and pioneered inside-out stitching, no-hem, and unlined pieces, the antithesis of 1950s formality.
- Line now includes ready-to-wear, accessories, underwear, sportswear, a diffusion line, children's, and a collection of fragrances.
